Live cowboy poetry again visits Philip

Modern western poets and songwriters ... Entertaining an audience of over 100 in Philip, September 30, were cowboy poets Jay Snider (left) and Ken Cook (center) and songwriter/singer Kevin Davis.

What started last school year as a local guest speaker for the Philip High School junior English class transformed this year into a three-person evening's worth of entertainment for the general public.

The Thursday, September 30, cowboy poetry reading and songwriting performance was held at the American Legion Hall in Philip. The show, entitled "This One's for the Cowboys" featured returning poet laureate Ken Cook, along with poet Kevin Davis and writer/singer Jay Snider.


Weber on Honor Flight for WWII Vets

At Arlington National Cemetery ... Greg Weber, left, was one of the 117 World War II veterans who were on the Rapid City to Washington, D.C. Honor Flight, September 23-24. He was joined by his son, Craig Weber, who was a last-minute addition to the 40-60 guardians and medical staff accompanying the veterans.

Gregor "Greg" Weber could not make his originally scheduled Honor Flight for Veterans last year. This year, though, he did make the most recent trip based out of Rapid City, September 23-24.

"This is going to be the birthday present of my life, however long that may be," said Weber, whose birthday was September 21. He said, "Both days were humid and in the 90s, but it was a wonderful trip, nice clear days. It was a wonderful time. They pack a lot into two days. We had box lunches so we could eat while going from one place to the others.
